i've got a question for your general thoughts on two different skis:
the surface one life (2010's) and the line sir francis bacon
i picked up the one lifes recently at a price i couldn't ignore. i put in some research and figured they'd be a great playful ski. though, as i think about it now, i see that the bacon is also known to be wicked playful.
i'm 6'1", around 170lbs. I ski northeast, specifically northern Vermont. i'm looking to ski the mountain creatively and have fun with it. i want a ski that's going to be playful yet capable of taking me to new heights. i'm going to be taking the ski off the trails as well as on the trails a bit. i am willing to sacrifice a bit of all mountain capability, seeing how i've got a pair of ar6's.
i guess my main concern is the stiffness of the one lifes. i realize that due to their rocker they're going to be mad playful, but i also see Pollard throwing his bacons around completely grooving.
